Chances are you might get this one right away. It's different than it was in 1965, but, not THAT different. Still, it's crazy to see how this popular Seattle hangout spot has changed. That big Bartell's is long gone and with it went the Coca-Cola sign and Pan-Am billboard. Those curved awnings at the right lead to a transportation choice we still use, we just get to it a different way these days. And that Bon Marché building in the background? It's still there but it's something else altogether. So, any idea where this is?
